Cookies and I have a love-hate relationship when it comes to my baking them. I always go into baking with such grand ideas and hopes and it never works out how I plan! I thought I would do a cute Martha Stewart style post about making some adorable Westie Christmas cookies. I know myself so I cheated a bit by using a mix instead of making the dough from scratch and took photos along the way.
Ok, simple enough, now all that was left was to bake for six minutes and cool for frosting, yay, success! Fifteen minutes later I jumped off the couch, “Oh crap!”
Yep, beyond burned. So I gave up and tried again the next night with much better results. So I do have nine fairly perfect cookies to show for my efforts (I burned another batch after I made these! Gah!).
Eh, at least I tried! And isn’t it the thought that counts this time of year? And it is a cute Westie cookie, the resemblance is remarkable 🙂
